HTC One Preview: What Can We Expect from HTC On Tuesday?

February 17, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

So by now we all know that HTC is planning this big event on Tuesday. They are holding simultaneous events in New York City and London where they are expected to announce the HTC M7/One. They may also announce the G2 and M4 that were also rumored, but we’ll be focusing more on the M7 since it’s their flagship device.

Specs

As far as specs go, we can expect similar to what the Droid DNA/Butterfly already has. In fact that’s what has been rumored for the past few months as well. Here’s what we’ve seen rumored and leaked for specs so far:

  • 4.7-inch, 1080p display
  • 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16/32GB internal storage
  • Android Jelly Bean (no indication if this is 4.1 or 4.2)
  • Coming in Black and silver/white

So as you can see, not to much of a difference between the Droid DNA and the M7/One. Except for the screen size and processor speed. So I guess we call this the Droid DNA’s smaller brother?

Carriers/availability

So far we’ve been told that this device will be available on Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile. We’ve also heard that Verizon has passed on this device, which sounds about right since they already have the HTC Droid DNA. With the announcement taking place in February, we’re expecting (or rather have our fingers crossed) for a March release date. HTC Needs to get this device out as soon as possible. Especially since the latest rumors are pointing to the Galaxy S4 coming in March. We’ve also heard that the HTC One will be $199 for te 16GB and $299 for the 32GB on contract.

Final Thoughts

We’ve seen this device leaked so many times, we’re just ready to see it come out and be available. As an HTC fan (which is getting harder and harder these days) I’m trying to get excited for this device, but if it’s just a Butterfly+ or Droid DNA+, I don’t think it’ll sell well at all. But we’ll have to wait until Tuesday to find out. We’ll be doing a special AH Show Tuesday evening at 7pm EST/4pm PST talking all about HTC and their new device(s) that they announced on Tuesday. So make sure you join us for that.

Is there anyone out there planning on making the HTC One their next Android device? Let us know in the comments below.
